California will soon release an updated evaluation of greenhouse gas emissions from storage systems participating in the Self-Generation Incentive Program. Unfortunately, due to incomplete policies and methodology, the state may again reinforce the erroneous narrative that customer-sited storage drives up emissions. There’s a better approach for customer-sited storage designs and applications to be applied to the greatest benefit of the state, and to prevent storage from being artificially constrained from helping California reach its GHG goals. As it has done with programs, tariffs and incentives to encourage customers to reduce energy consumption or peak demand, or to shift consumption to better utilize resources and reduce costs, the state should apply the same approach to enable storage to maximize GHG emissions reductions. Customer-sited or behind-the-meter (BTM) stor...
